It’s moving day!!! And this is what my life has been like for the past week……BOXES!!! Lots of boxes, lots of bubble wrap, and lots of packing tape. Amazing how much stuff can accumulate!!
And to think in only a few short days…..all these boxes will need to be unpacked!! Yikes!! Let the fun begin!
I know it’s Thursday and I’m late with this post but that’s what happens when life gets crazy….
So this past weekend was a mix of rain and sun but it didn’t stop us from having fun. I’m currently a little obsessed with Instagram. They finally came out with a version for all us uncool people who don’t have an iphone. Yes, it’s something I admit to….I have an Android. Maybe one day I will make the switch to being a cool person and get an iphone, especially now that I’m a ipad girl. Anywho, come find me on Instagram I’m easy to find…Multiply Delicious.
So since I’m a little obsessed with Instagram I thought it would be fun to share a look at our weekend of fun. And by the way I must have gone camera crazy because now my camera on my phone won’t work. Ugh! Maybe that is a reason to make a switch to an iphone!
The hubby had to head down to Miami to handle some work stuff so after my Saturday morning CrossFit WOD I had full duty with the little monkeys. Saturday started as a sunny day but quickly changed into a rainy one. That didn’t stop us in making a trip to a fun place close to us where they have nature walks, butterfly garden, sea aquariums and more. The rain kept us mostly inside but we did venture out a little. We actually ventured out between storms and found a hut right by the Intercoastal and had our picnic….even though the sign said no picnics. I know bad example to break the rules but I didn’t think anyone would stop us because no one was to dare venture out in the rain like we did. We sat and had our picnic and the weather/storms quickly approached which meant we stayed under the hut for while because making a mad dash for the car when the rain let up.
We came home and with the rain falling outside I decided it would be fun to have a baking session. So we made the girls very favorite cookie recipe, the Dark Chocolate Cakies. They have many reasons why they like these but I think their favorite is because they get to lick the batter (no eggs).
Then Sunday came and it turned out to be pretty darn beautiful. In the morning the hubby took the girls back to their new favorite place so they could explore minus the rain while I stayed home and did my homework. Wish I could have joined them but having two classes now has meant a lot more homework!
In the afternoon we all got to head to the beach and run in the water and build sand castles! A pretty fun afternoon!
So there you have it folks a weekend filled with fun and my new obsession….Instagram!
On this Mother’s Day this is how I feel about being a mom….
Remember to breathe….deeply and often. Name those feelings as they fly through your heart.
When your children drive you crazy think of the warm sweetness of their bodies when they were just new. THIS TOO SHALL PASS and far too quickly. Let the dishes pile up and have a party instead. Laugh aA LOT.
Go puddle jumping and star watching. Build forts and climb trees. Spend rainy days in bed snuggling and sunny days outside adventuring. Sing loudly and off-key. Dance like MANIACS! Butterfly kisses and bear hugs cure broken hearts. Tell them they can be ANYTHING….tell yourself that too. Now believe it! And don’t forget to breathe through it all…..
And here is another quote I found recently from Donna Bell and it spoke mountains to me. Hope it does to all other moms out there….
Motherhood is a choice YOU make everyday to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own
to teach the hard lessons
to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is….
and to forgive yourself over and over again
for doing everything wrong.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!!
Spring was in a full swing when we landed in Atlanta last week for our Spring Break. The flowers were in full bloom (and the pollen too). I was in love with all the flowers too and found myself clicking my camera left and right. Here are just a few photo’s from our trip….Happy Spring!!
On our trip we when to the Botanical Gardens, simply beautiful. A must visit if you are in Atlanta in the spring. One of our favorite parts of the garden was walking through the orchid houses. Here is just a few of the dozen photo’s I took of orchids alone.
I love spring!!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!!
